How much does Stroke Care Cost?
A stroke is a terminal and life-threatening medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. We understand that it can have a huge impact physically and mentally on an individual’s life. According to the Stroke Association, “the quickest recovery takes place in the days and weeks after a stroke. But recovery can continue for months and years after a stroke.”
That’s why at Helping Hands, we provide stroke aftercare to help your loved one get back on the road to recovery. We have been providing care for more than 30 years as a private care agency. This simply means we believe in transparency – there are no hidden costs or unexpected fees. We understand how confusing it may get, making sense with a lot of information overload, which is why we like to be upfront from the beginning.
Our stroke care packages are delivered on visiting or live-in care basis. Your loved one will receive person-centred care that is fully tailored to your needs, values and requirements. Whatever option you choose, our amazing careers will continue to promote your independence and provide you with the support, whenever you need it.
Visiting stroke care costs:
If you are looking after your loved one and need an extra pair of hands to help you during the week, then visiting care may be the best option for you. Our carers can visit from as little as 30 minutes a week to several trips a day – all dependent on your needs. We can help with bathing and dressing, moving around the home, verbal exercises and medication.

Paying for Stroke Care
As a private home care provider, we directly recruit our carers, which means everything from their contract to their training is covered by us. We also ensure that there are no hidden fees, unexpected costs and unnecessary paperwork – so you won’t be faced with any surprises when you receive your bill at the end of the month.
Possible Funding Options
Many of our customers pay for their care privately, however, depending on your circumstances you may be eligible for care funding from the NHS or your local authority. Our friendly customer care team is available seven days a week to advise you on your funding options. You can also visit our FAQs page on costs and funding for more information.
Planning for Stroke Care
We understand how daunting it can be planning care for yourself or a loved one, which is why we recruit compassionate and empathetic carers to provide you with the highest level of care you deserve. All of our private carers are trained to ensure they are equipped with the right skills to provide you with the care you need. For your added reassurance, all our carers go through a strict background check, so you know you will be cared for by someone you can trust. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which means you’ll receive a compassionate, trustworthy and well-led service, which is better value for money.
